The Scale of Thanks


 

“The most important things in life are often the EASIEST to take for granted.”

This Thanksgiving, consider taking a moment to think about what you’re thankful for, then take a second moment to think again!

Often the most important things in our lives are things we’ve ALWAYS had, and those are often the things we tend to take for granted.

Sometimes we are so focused on where we are going that we are at risk of overlooking where we are and how we got there….

When you hear “Happy Thanksgiving”, let it remind you to:

  • be happy you have something to be thankful for
  • and thankful you have something to be happy about

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!

and Thank YOU! 😉

  1. Everyday should be a thanksgiving. If people only realized how much of their success is owed to others and circumstances, they will be more thankful and less arrogant. Thankfulness is according to me a way towards detachment.

    • Great thoughts, and totally agree! While I’ve always been a “polite person” for the most part, up until recently my “thank yous” were more of a mechanical response than anything else.

      Now I strive to be TRULY thankful, rather than just going through the motions. AND, to your point, THAT is when “being thankful” became something more – it can truly be humbling, help one be more content, and likewise HAPPY!

      Btw Rohit, I love how you put it in terms of “detachment” – it got me thinking, and while it could be interpreted a few ways, I think all of them make alot of sense. (whether detaching from the material world, from the ego or any number of things)!

      Very insightful! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
